About

I have been a registered nurse for the past 24 years. l have extensive experience in practice, education, and research, along with a strong commitment to the delivery of high quality patient care, and proven academic and clinical leadership qualities. I initially trained as a general nurse at St George’s Hospital, London, and then worked for seven years in A&E, rising to the level of charge nurse. I have since held senior clinical positions as a nurse practitioner in minor injuries units, walk-in centres, and general practice. In 2001 I graduated from City University with First Class joint honours in Sociology & Psychology. In 2004 I graduated with Distinction from an MSc Nursing degree (Advanced Nurse Practitioner pathway) at St Bartholomew’s School of Nursing and Midwifery (City University). I subsequently worked as a senior lecturer in advanced nursing at London South Bank University (LSBU) from 2004-2011 for the BSc / MSc Advanced Nurse Practitioner degrees, whilst still maintaining my clinical practice as a nurse practitioner. In 2007 I qualified as a nurse independent nurse prescriber and I have used this qualification fully in my subsequent clinical roles. In 2007 I also qualified as a higher education teacher via a Post-Graduate Certificate of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (PGCHE), and correspondingly became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). In 2011 I was appointed as a Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing at the University of Wolverhampton. I have a keen interest in research and evidence-based practice. I have taught research to a varied range of pre-registration and post-registration nursing students. I have published research related to nurse practitioner consultation communication, and also OSCEs in nursing education. I am currently in the final stages of completing my doctoral thesis which investigated the links between nurse practitioner consultation communication and patient enablement, participation, and satisfaction. I also have extensive experience of supervising students to successful completion of their Masters Dissertations. I am currently a reviewer for Nurse Education Today, the Journal of Advanced Nursing, and also occasionally review research proposals submitted to the Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre of the National Institute for Health Research.
